Medieval skeleton leads to location of long-lost church

Construction work at a home in southern England led to the discovery of a medieval skeleton which helped archaeologists pinpoint the location of St. Lucians, a long-lost Saxon church.

Mrs Roberts, 55, had started work to insulate the home’s foundations.

She was out when the builders called to say detectives had swooped on her home and were checking the discovery of the dead body.

But officers quickly found they were dealing with old bones and called in archaeologists.

Now it has emerged the skeleton proves for the first time the precise location of St Lucian’s, one of the town’s oldest known churches.
